Agilent recently hosted 115 young women in junior high through high school at its eleventh “Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day” at the company’s Santa Rosa campus. Under the auspices of Agilent’s Women’s Leadership Development Network, the daylong event included a hands-on science competition, as well as an address by Debbie Senesky, a Stanford University professor of aeronautics and astronautics who encouraged the students in their pursuit of science and experimentation.
The day’s project for the students was to create a structure to move a marble from above a table to the bottom at the slowest speed possible using a set of basic, everyday props. Agilent engineers volunteered as team leads to help the girls and encourage them think about future careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
